One Body Conference: Moving Disability Ministry Forward
God calls us to be one body, regardless of ability or disability. This conference is designed for families living with disability, volunteers, ministry leaders, pastors, and anyone who desires to care for God’s people. The day will focus on the need for disability ministry in the church; along with tools, strategies, encouragement and action steps to begin, enhance and move disability ministry forward.
Workshop topics include understanding disability, how to begin, church engagement and community outreach, disability ministry models, Beyond Suffering, survival tips for parents, resources and more.
Nationally known author, speaker and disability advocate, Emily Colson, will be the keynote speaker. In her award-winning book, Dancing with Max, Emily, and her father, Chuck Colson, shared the struggle and beauty of life with Max, Emily’s 28-year-old son with autism. Through her message of hope and the value of every life, Emily has inspired many to persevere through their own challenges and see the gifts. Emily is passionate about engaging our families affected by disability with the church. Emily has been a single mother for most of Max’s 28 years, with hard-fought lessons in faith, life, love and a whole lot of laughter.
